Bedtime Woes: A Conversation with my 5-Year-Old

by - December 10, 2010

ME: You're NOT behaving and you told me that you would be good & follow directions.
HER: I told you that, but I am trying.
ME: I don't want to hear that you're trying! Go to bed right NOW!
HER: I said I was trying to follow directions mom. I'm trying my best. That's all I can do mom, is try my best.
ME: *Blank stare* .....GO TO BED!!!

What is the deal with small children and bedtime? Even after a very busy day, when you know they should be tired, they just don't like bedtime.
